Good list Heskey.. Not too dissimilar to my own.. See you've got Jones.. Good call, but I wanted to rate him at SMW & MW to make room for more fighters overall..
The only other reason I left him out is cos that's the only weight he got KO'd in..

Sorry.. I missed your bottom sentence earlier..

Well spotted!... I threw him in as a wild card.. Some of my friends in the US, who are unbiased & know their stuff, absolutely rave about him, so I wanted a reaction.. In truth, I'm not all that clued up on him, & have gone solely on trusted opinions, so if he disappoints, I'll swap him for Tommy Loughran, who I shamefully forgot!.. Well it gets us all talking anyway.lol

15's Good for starters.. I noted you rate Loughran highly.. I kind've overlooked him, as he was very feather fisted with a dodgy chin, but boxing ability, he was a genius, & I'm now reconsidering.. Billy Conn, is another.. I may have underrated him to.. Great boxer, good chin, but once again, no power.. He did well against Joe Louis though..
What are your thoughts to try & persuade me on these two?...
